Yes, he did. You don't get that kind of audience shriek without dropping your pants. The script (on microfilm at the Library of Congress) also confirms it.
On another occasion with Fred Allen, Jack dropped trou to reveal underwear emblazoned with LSMFT. Also scripted.
It's a cheap, but effective way of getting big laughs. But in the case of Benny and Allen, very untypical.
